Microsoft? Why not Apple? Because everyone knows Apple computers are more efficient.

Yes, I see. I'm checking out the link you posted earlier and Hillary Clinton is winning strong against Sanders. And I think Cruz and Trump will have a strong tie tonight.

Iowans are a little more serious, and it looks like the college kids aren't risking the snow to get out and caucus.

6% and 1% in it's too soon to report totals IMO...


give them an hour and let's see what's up...

I don't know how on Earth you can claim that yet.

If Hillary wins, how long do you think it will be before there are HAARP threads up blaming the snow on the government?

I'm happy seeing that both parties have stiff competition for their respected nominations. Last election it felt like a big blow over because there wasn't much competition to influence voters to come out to vote.

I'll start writing a preview version right now.

I'm watching the ABC live stream,

abcnews.go.com...

It is quite interesting to watch an event like this as it happens. There is a lot of standing around and being counted. Dividing the room up, etc. It's nice to see average Americans out participating in the electoral process.

I don't know if I'll watch it to the end, but considering the large turn out, it will be very interesting to see if Donald Trump is confirmed as front runner for the Republicans. That is my main interest.

It's not snowing.

Just an update before I get back to work:

Early numbers don't look good for Bernie, but key sections of Polk country have not been reported. It's still anyone's game.

Are you inside yet? How does the crowd look?


Crowd is slowly coming in. Many are still at their caucuses.

My duties require me to be at the Bernie Sander's event tonight. When he comes down to do his victory/concession speech, I'll try to grab some more pics with my sub-par cellphone.

Bernie Sanders is doing well but my money is on Hillary tonight. I think they're the best the Democrats have for a fun rivalry for the nomination.

By the way, many if not most of the caucuses didn't get started until 7 cst. They usually take a couple hours, so everyone needs to hang tight. It will be a bit till we get real solid numbers.

Early numbers have Cruz slightly ahead of Trump.

sounds like a great representation of the Democratic process, though I am wondering if you are familiar with the differences in the DEM vs GOP approach to this in Iowa...

From my live tally, the GOP is reporting 12.2% with individual vote tallies, and the DEMs are at 29.2% reporting and theirs are represented by SDEs (State Delegate Equivalents)

IS that a party choice on how they report?

So do the "polls close at 8pm" or does it go on longer than that? And, since the polls have not closed, why are we getting any results at all?
